I will try to refrain myself from making any "we be jammin'" jokes, but it is hard, my friends.
Last weekend when my parents were visiting my mom came up with the brilliant idea of making freezer jam. She is one smart lady, let me tell you.
A batch of strawberry blueberry jamYou buy a packet of pectin at any grocery store and just follow the precise recipe provided (or else it won't gel). The little insert will tell you for whatever type of fruit you're using how much fruit to use and how much sugar. You mash up the fruit, boil the pectin packet with a little bit of water, and stir in the allotted sugar. This jam is kept in the fridge or freezer, so you don't have to go through the expansive process of boiling the jars and the fruit.
